Why is it everyone has an opinion on what Rush Limbaugh says? They hear one part of "I want Obama to fail," and they don’t listen to why he said what he said.

While I do not defend Limbaugh for saying he wants President Barack Obama to fail, if people listen to why he said that, they would have more respect for Limbaugh. It is the media that take one quote and blow it out of proportion.

Limbaugh doesn’t want Obama to fail as a president; he wants the president to fail on all the programs (stimulus, health care, etc.) that the president wants to pass. According to Limbaugh, the programs Obama wants to pass will be bad for America, they will mess up the country, so that the America we know will no longer be America.

The bottom line? If you don’t like what Limbaugh says, don’t listen to him.
